New Model Release - JD R450 SP Windorwer

This is more of a new-ish model release of the John Deere R450 self propelled windrower. With Case IH and New Holland versions recently released it would be unlike John Deere to not have a toy version of their own hardware on the market. This toy features free rolling rubber wheels, clear cab glass, and realistic graphics and details. For about $8 this a very nice model with great detail.

New Holland Bale Wagon

While traveling through northern Michigan I stumbled across this bale pickup wagon. I have seen several of these in real life, but this one was in great shape. I have seen a few toy replicas of these, but I have yet to try it for myself. I will definitely be on the lookout for one of these at the National Farm Toy Show which starts officially in about 40 hours.

Hauling Pumpkins

In the spirit of Halloween week (AKA I forgot to post this on Halloween) here is a picture of a tractor tat I took when I was buying pumpkins this year. The sign was in the same guys yard and I thought it was appropriate for the blog.
